We don’t see it every day especially in this part of the country, but it’s there. It brings us light, sometimes it brings us warmth. It’s the sun. We see it as a flaming ball of fire in the sky, but it’s the largest thing in our solar system. In fact of all the planets, the asteroids and everything else in the solar system the sun accounts for more than 99.8% of it.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the sun seems so bright lately, especially late in the day. I keep thinking I’m having some issues with my vision, or maybe it’s just that I’m getting a little older and can’t handle it. It just seems the sun this fall has been so much brighter than during the summer, so I looked into it, and sure enough, it is brighter.
There's nothing like watching the sun come up. The older I have gotten, the more I have learned to appreciate a sunrise. I love to watch the sun come up in Allegany county when I am sitting in my tree stand.
A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Tom Garwol took these photos of the sun coming up on Gunnville Road, just a few miles down the road from our neighborhood...
What's being called a massive solar storm has been bombarding earth with radiation since Sunday and will continue for a few more days. Scientists are calling it the biggest solar storm in more than six years but you won't see or feel any of the effects.
Some of the richest people in the world simply came up with new ways of using things that most of us have in front of our faces everyday. They were just the first to use it for their own good. This lady is taking something that was created billions of years ago and she's planning to end world hunger with it.
